    My mother was a diabetic which died of renal failure in 2005 at the age of 60. Since then I have been adamant about being tested for kidney tests and diabetes. I was diagnoses in 2008(?) with diabetes which I take metformin for and I tolerate it well. Below I will list the meds I take and the latest blood test levels:

    Metformen - diabetes
    fibro - lyrica
    gerd - protonex
    cholesterol - tricor
    migraines - topamax
    calcium with vitamin d3
    depression - wellbutrion & lexapro

    creatinine - 1.30
    egrf - 50
    bun - 16
    carbon dioxide - 17 (low)
    chloride - 109 (high)
    calcium 8.5 (low)

    I am in constant pain. My pain were my kidney's are, around to just below my rib cage. I feels like a tight band making me nausea all the time but also causing me pain. I do not frequent the bathroom as much as I used too. I went last week to see a urologist which sent me for a sonogram. His PA called me Tuesday of this week to tell me I did not have kidney stones. Duh. She also told me to keep the appointment with the nephrologist I have this coming Tuesday, the 13th of May. But my problem is the pain. I am a complete mess. I want to sleep all the time, except of course at night. I am weak, I get dizzy, confused. I am utterly lost and do not know what to do. Help me please because I am tired of crying myself to sleep because of the pain every night.
